Two days after the storm and cleaning chairs 5/20/17

Two nights ago we had an awful storm that actually didn’t last long.  One minute it was just raining hard, the next minute came the wind.  I didn’t think to bring down the umbrella in the back yard and was afraid it was going to blow out of my back yard.

I went to sleep and didn’t realize how bad the wind had gotten until I looked behind the fence of my backyard this morning.

^^^^This is my tree in my backyard.  
The limb that is now missing was facing 
the rear of my home.

 ^^^^This is a tree that is behind my fence in the common area.
The tree limb from my tree is on the ground.

 ^^^^Another photo of the tree limb from my tree.  
How is this even possible?  
The limb was facing my home and somehow managed to break off, 
turn around and fly to the other side of the fence instead of inside of my yard???

^^^^Lunch for next week is in the crockpot.  
Chicken breasts, Cajun Sausage, can of Golden Mushroom soup, can of regular Mushroom soup, a package of dried onion soup, 1/2 a can of Whipping Cream, 1 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne pepper, and 8 ounces of cream cheese.

^^^^No Crust Cheesecake.  One package of plain Gelatine dissolved in 1 cup boiling water. 
Two packs of Cream Cheese.  One tablespoon vanilla flavoring and one tablespoon of Mio Lemon.  
It’s delicious with whip cream on top. 

^^^^I picked up a bottle of SuperClean this morning.  
I’m taking it to work later.

^^^^^So that I can clean the pretty red chairs at work this afternoon.  
It’s amazing how filthy they get. I’ll have them looking like new in a few hours.
Since I’m cleaning chairs today, I’ll be taking tomorrow as my day off.
I don’t know what possessed me to volunteer to do this today.  
I’ve been up since 4:30 AM and really don’t feel like going anywhere this late in the day.
Okay, on my way to work.  The sooner I get this done, the sooner I can get back home.

Car Chases Crocheting Field Work Gloves Sandy

A Much Calmer Day 10/30/2012

I made it through the night warm, dry and safe. …..slept like a log even with the wind blowing and whistling outside my window.  My lights never even flickered during the storm.

This morning, this is all the damage I could find…

The top of the light by my front door came off but was on the ground right below…

No big deal.  I never use that light anyway, since I rigged up a motion sensor flood light.    Nothing else broken, the siding is still on the house.  The car is fine.  I consider myself pretty lucky! 🙂  I did find trash and trash cans everywhere on my way to work this morning.  It was pretty much like driving through an obstacle course.

Last night at around 10 there was so much noise that I decided to go out in the back yard and see.  I have a 500-watt floodlight out there.  Well, as you can see, it really wasn’t all that bad…much bark, hardly any bite.

I guess I won’t have any daytime work for a while.  I received an email from one of my clients that I chase for.  He wrote:  “Due to the significant weather event on the east coast, please note the following.  Please suspend field chasing in the following states until reassigned: CT, DC, DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA, RI, MA. ”  Surely all my other clients will follow suit.

I was freezing at work earlier.  My hands were so cold, I could hardly type.  Then I remembered the fingerless gloves that I made.

Ha, all nice and warm now.   Well, back to work.  It’s going to be a long day.

Hope everyone is safe out there.
